TrueFi Governance: Recent & Active Motions
There is a lot going on in the TrueFi forum, here’s a quick summary of proposals to vote on:
Establishing the TrueFi Foundation - discussion around next steps towards TrueFi decentralization are taking place in the forum
Incentivize a tfUSDC/USDC liquidity pool - Divert a part of tfBUSD and tfTUSD Farm rewards to a low fee tfUSDC/USDC liquidity pool.
Cauris Portfolio Manager - Incentives Request - An investment firm that provides private credit to financial technology companies in emerging markets is requesting incentives for their portfolio.
Reduce TRU farming rewards by 30% – TrueFi’s tfUSDC and tfTUSD pools have shrunk considerably in size as of lately. Reducing emissions can give the DAO a longer runway and bring TrueFi closer to sustainability.
TrueFi Stories: Blockworks, Nasdaq and Gemini
This month’s top feature: TrueFi’s Bill Wolf (CIO) weaved his decades of Wall Street experience with a engrossing vision of how DeFi will encroach on traditional finance with Jack Farley on Blockworks’ Forward Guidance this month. It’s one of our favorite conversations about TrueFi to date, and not just because of Bill’s characteristic Southern accent.

Podcast: DAO Talks hosted Michael Gasiorek (Marketing) & Michael Bland (Legal) to talk about TrueFi’s path to decentralization and its innovative lending structures.
Podcast: CoinJournal Podcast interviewer Dan Ashmore asked Rafael what uncollateralized lending is like in a now post-Terra world.
